Illegal entry of India, Myanmar nationals high on agenda

Dhaka will urge New Delhi to stop entry of Indian and Myanmar nationals into Bangladesh through the Indo-Bangla border and also maintain the 4,096-kilometer long border in accordance with the Coordinated Border Management Plan (CBMP).

A meeting of the Director Generals (DGs) of Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) and the Border Security Force (BSF) of India will be held in New Delhi today (Wednesday), according to a press release issued by the Public Relation Officer (PRO) of the BGB yesterday.

“Intrusion of border and illegal trespass by the BSF personnel, Indian and Myanmar citizens would be discussed in the meeting,” the release said. The bilateral six-day talks is going to be held at a time while a number of people in different provinces in India are protesting against India’s controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Act and the National Register of Citizens (NRC). The chiefs of the two border forces will also discuss ways to further improve the management of the porous 4,096-km border between the two countries. The Bangladesh side will also call upon the Indian side to take necessary steps to prevent the smuggling of arms, explosives, drugs like yaba, phensidyl, heroin and other contraband items into Bangladesh from India.

Dhaka is also expected to call upon the BSF to take back the Indian nationals who had completed their prison term in different jails after being charged with various criminal offences in Bangladesh, government sources said.

 The government has identified a number of problems concerning the border areas, including the age-old dispute of rivers changing their courses, sheltering of criminals or miscreants in the border areas and the BSF’s interception of development work inside Bangladesh.

 The DG of the BGB is likely to tell his Indian counterpart that the Bangladesh-India joint border guidelines should be followed in letter and spirit in resolving any problem that may crop up along the border of the two neighbouring countries.

 Major General Md Shafeenul Islam will lead the 11-member delegation, while the BSF’s DG Vivek Johri will lead the seven-member team during the meeting.

According to the BGB sources, the border force has detained a number of people for entering Bangladesh illegally from India through different border points, especially Nischintapur and Mogdaspur areas of Moheshpur upazila in Jhenidah district after the controversial new citizenship law was passed by the BJP government.
